New Early Flood Warning Systems

  • PDF

altFlooding, both predicted and sudden, has become an increasingly common phenomenon in recent years. Many suffering localities have been un- or under-prepared, with little reason to believe they were at risk until it was too late. A reliable and cost-effective advance warning system that continuously monitors rivers, storm drains and overflows for rising water levels can save lives and protect property, alerting authorities and communities to impending danger.

The SonicSens 2 battery-powered ultrasonic level and flow sensor, from specialist manufacturer HWM (UK), offers non-contact, accurate, remote and wireless monitoring of water levels and flow rates. The ultrasonic sensor precisely measures the distance to (and therefore level of) the water surface, and can automatically send alerts to up to 16 phone numbers when the level reaches specified thresholds. When an alarm condition activates, it can also provide accelerated dial-in functionality, allowing users to quickly access detailed, relevant and timely new information when they have to.

Noise pollution has increased due to the 'wrong kind of wind'

  • PDF

altNoise pollution complaints have risen more than 900 per cent in South West London, as the level of noise from Heathrow Airport has increased exponentially.

Although it was first believed that the increase in noise was down to both runways running simultaneously, it is now believed that a change in weather has caused the amplification of noise.

Some have reported that the noise is being carried over South West London when it was not previously.

New Digital Controllers for General Application

  • PDF

altWIKA (Germany) has now completed its portfolio of temperature controllers with two digital instruments for simple thermostat applications: The model SC58 and model SC64 close the gaps in this segment between mechanical products and complex PID instruments.

The new digital controllers are designed for a measuring range of -80 to +400 °C, and can therefore be used universally. The switch hysteresis can be set via the menu, which assists the flexibility. Both two-point controllers are equally notable for their high switching accuracy and contact rating (16 A). They are easy to use and offer a highly-visible display (13 mm high characters).

Safe Determination of Halogens, Phosphorus & Sulphur

  • PDF

altThe Model OFCU-1 from Exeter Analytical (UK) provides a highly safe tool for preparing samples for elemental analysis of Halogens, Phosphorus and Sulphur using the Oxygen Flask Combustion procedure.

The oxygen flask combustion procedure is provided as the preparatory step in the determination of bromine, chlorine, fluorine, iodine, phosphorus and sulphur in some Pharmacopeial articles. Combustion of the material under test (usually organic) yields water-soluble inorganic products, which may be analysed for specific elements as directed in the individual Pharmacopeia monograph or general chapter. The oxygen flask combustion procedure using the attractively priced OFCU-1 is capable of being used for repeatable determination of elemental composition from percentage levels to parts per million.
